60" Build Step #28

One of the design criteria is that the vehicle can be pitched on its side for storage and transport. Nonetheless the motors will be mounted centrally on the perimeter sides of the airframe so that they overhang by a couple of inches. In order that the airframe is not resting on one or other of the motors when manoeuvred in this way, I am going to have to reorientate the four uppermost 'prongs' from a vertical orientation to extend fore and aft. On one hand this overhang will protect the motors in this case, though it will also provide a carrying handle at each corner with which four people can between them carry the airframe prior to launch... picture to follow as and when.
